Hey, friends. I’m so obsessed with scrapbooking right now. It’s addictive. My last post was about full page photos, and today I’m back, teaming up with Canon USA, to share ideas for filling pages with multiple photos. I love the look of scrapbook pages filled with colorful photos. There is just something about seeing lots of memories packed onto one page that’s so joyful and warm to me.
Today I’m here to share some ideas for packing pages with happy memories!
I used my Canon PIXMA MG7120 printer to print the photos for these pages. I just put several 3″ x 3″ photos on 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of their semi-gloss photo paper to consolidate printing.
For this first page I used a 2″ circle punch to create 20 circles. I adhered them in a grid pattern and then used a sewing machine to stitch small lines between every circle.
This page is a great solution for times when you have a lot photos you love from an event, but you don’t want to end up with 20 pages. It’s perfect for detail photos and would look cool paired with a full-page photo in an album.
Pocket pages! I used these square pockets to put together images from our trip to Palm Springs last year. I love mixing them with colorful patterns.
I like to journal right on my photos as much as possible. I’ve never been good at adding long bodies of journaling to my scrapbooks, so instead I try to add little bits here and there.
I stitched this pocket closed after I filled it with sequins. Fun!
This time I used a larger (2 1/2″) punch to make circles, and I embellished them with a few paper elements and a journaling card circle.
For this page I pieced together square photos, journaled on them, and added a bunch of enamel dots to give it texture and color.
Supply source list: Enamel Dots, Patterned Papers, Sequins, Photo-Safe Pens.
And this last page is a pocket page layout made with one big photo. If you don’t have a wide format printer, and you want to fill a page with one giant photo, you can print it on more than one piece of paper, and then piece it together in the pocket pages! I love the look of these big, broken-up photos.
Now who’s in the mood to scrapbook? I know how I’m spending this next weekend. 🙂 xo! Elsie

Your scrapbooking posts are my fave! I have always loved your style and have your “52 Scrapbooking Challenges” book. As much as I love embellishments, this style is so much more doable and puts the focus on where it should be, the pictures. Can’t wait for more posts like this 🙂
So inspiring! I love everything you share about scrapbooking and photos. I have your photography book and app and I love it all! I haven’t had time to scrapbook and have so many pictures waiting to be printed. Thanks for all of the inspiration.
Hey! Thanks for the inspo. I’m great at taking photos but kind of terrible at presenting them. I just sorted through two boxes of photos I need to organize and make into a viewable scrapbook. This gave me a lot of ideas.
Love this! These are so cute! What great ideas!
me too I’m in a complete scrapbooking mode ! I got one of these cute golden instagram album from we are memory keepers, printing my instagram album, filling with polaroid ( it fits the sx 70 format ) as well as my diana mini pictures 🙂 if you know where to find a true 2 inch square punch, I’m interested !

What an amazing.post…. Your.blog inspires the creativity.in me
I love the idea of more photo-heavy pages. I especially love the circle photo layouts. what brand are your punches and where did you get them? Thanks!
What type/where did you find the 3 x 4 square divided page protector? I’ve been looking everywhere!
I just got that image of a portfolio made in the format of a scrapbook. Just imagine how cool it would be. Is the black text made by hand or in a graphic editor?
Love the circles! I plan on starting ‘my year in photos’ photobooks
Love these pages! I’m a big fan of simple scrapbook pages like these, along with the simple full page ones you shared last time!
This is how I want to scrapbook. These look beautiful and simply whimsical. :] Great job!
Hi Annie! We contacted the winners directly 🙂 -Jacki
I adore all the photo ideas that you have! Thanks for sharing!!
Speaking of Canon, did you ever announce the winners of #abeautifulmesschallenge? I’d love to browse the winning photos!
Happy Monday!! ?
This looks so creative yet simple to do, thank you! It definitely inspires me to start scrapbooking…now all I need is all the materials which could be expensive eek!
Wow! I love this really creative idea! I can’t wait to try it, but first, I have to get paper.. and ink. 😛
Amazing, and I thought scrap booking was old fashioned! I can’t help thinking that some of them would look amazing framed on the wall as well.
I adore all of your photo DIYs. I can’t wait to make use of some of them once my boyfriend and I start living together. 🙂
That is one of the cleanest, most crisp photos of Salvation Mountain I have ever seen. AWESOME!
